What Is an Eye Emergency?
An eye emergency is a situation where your eye health and vision are at stake, such as a hit to the eye, cut, or eye disease. Even the smallest injury can damage your eye health, making treatment essential for protecting your sight.
Some potential eye emergencies include:
- Blunt trauma
- Chemical exposure
- Eye infections
- Foreign objects in the eye
What to Do During an Emergency
While emergencies can be overwhelming or scary, we’re here to help. Visiting us as soon as possible can help preserve your vision—we can assess the damage to your eye and provide timely treatment.
While it’s important to visit your eye doctor immediately, taking certain steps can help protect your eye health:
- Wash your hands with soap & water before touching the affected area
- Try & blink to remove debris if there is any in your eye
- Flush your eyes with cool or lukewarm water (if chemicals enter your eye)
Don’t rub or push on the eye, remove a foreign object in the eye, or take medications or eye drops.
